World Premiere of “Radical Son”
The Actors’ Theatre of South Carolina presents the world premiere of “Radical Son,” a play about race and freedom, at Threshold Repertory Theater (84 1/2 Society Street in Charleston), October 8 – 17. This drama reveals one of America’s first abolitionists, Charleston’s own John Laurens, a young, unsung Revolutionary war hero. Historian Alan Stello, says, “John Laurens’ astounding journey influenced not only a city, but a state and a young nation.” Timely in its themes of courage, love and reconciliation, the play co-stars Broadway veteran Clarence Felder. Performances are Thursday-Saturday at 7:30 pm and Sunday at 3:00 pm.
